chairman and the republican party's 2012 vice presidential nominee paul ryan here for his first live interview since the election. chairman, welcome back to meat meet. >> great to be back with you. >> let's talk about this top priority of the budget battle. it will really mark the beginning of the president's second term. the debt ceiling has been raised, at least temporarily, but there are still big decisions to be made. you specifically said in the last few days that your priority is to make a big down payment on the debt. a debt crisis that you see in this country. >> that's right. >> what do you specifically require? what's the priority? what has the president got to do in your point of view? >> i'll just explain what the speaker said when we passed that bill. our goal is to get cuts and reforms that put us on a path to balancing the budget in a decade. we think the senate ought to offer a budget. they haven't passed a budget in four years, even though we have a law that says we need a budget every year. we haven't seen any solutions offered by the president on how to get the bud
can strike americans in all forms. a sdabt, a storm, illness, or merely outliving our savings. ryan's budget imposes savage cuts to food stamps, children's health insurance, and other mitigations of suffering for the least fortunate. and ryan also voted against relief for victims of hurricane sandy. by ryan's definition, if the government is rebuilding your destroyed home, you're a taker too. >> look, this is a straw man argument. the president said earlier that we had suspicions about medicare and taking care of the elderly and feeding poor children. when he sets up these straw men, to affix views to add ver sears that they don't have, to win the argument by default, it's not an honest debate. we want to have a safety net. a safety net that's there for the vulnerable, poor, for people who cannot help themselves. but we don't want to have a culture in this country that encouraging more dependency that saps and drains people of their ability to make the most of their lives. >> which part of the culture today is doing that? is part of this culture that you even benefited from after yo
and a new day. new today we are getting as well, former republican vice presidentable nominee paul ryan unleashing criticism of president obama as he is starting his second term. listen to this. >> i decided to not comment between the election and inauguration because i wanted to see what kind of president we are looking at here. what kind of path he was putting his administration on, and all of the statements and comments lead me to my he is thinking more of a political conquest than political compromise. >> we will have more on that in just a moment. >>> also, a big week ahead in washington. hillary clinton set to step down as secretary of state this week and the gnat will hold a hearing on kerry to replace her. meantime in a new interview with the new republic president obama says gun control advocates need to listen to their opponents and understand and respect the tradition of hunting. he added that he enjoys skeet shooting at camp david. president weighed in on the dangers of football. they have been making headlines lately. he said if he had son he is not sure he would let his so
you tell me why, where, how they are going to get this budget balanced? mr. ryan, last year, i don't think this budget balanced for 20 years. you are saying ten, ten is fine. are they going to cut something that they can identify? >> your comments are reflective of what they are saying to his face. between now and april when paul ryan unveils his budget. you are boeing going to see hig for his cuts. they want him to take the lead when it comes to reform. >> you heard president obama yesterday. i dare say he does not want spending caughts and i dare say he would be happy to see in reverses in government spending. so that does not jive with what the house is doing. >> that is a fair point. some critics say inside of the house conference there is a real fight. they want to take these bold stances on the ten year balanced budget so they can get some leverage to fund the government when it comes up for a vote in a couple of week. >> no, i think they are doing the lord's work. thank you very much. we have a couple of special guests to tell us more. democrat from vermont, shawn duffy, re
next fox news sunday. ♪ >> this is a fox report. tonight, congressman paul ryan speaking out on speculation about 2016, what he said today about a white house run with his name at the top of the ticket. and convicted for being christian, for an american pastor locked up in iran and the father of two facing what is known as the hanging judge. now we know his fate. hunted for doing god's work, thrown in a notorious prison for months by one of the most brutal regimes on earth, only to receive a judgment not based on justice, but on fiction. in minutes, new reaction from the people fight to go win his freedom. what comes next? and she left on what was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime. and never came back. she's a mom, a wife, and now her family travelling a half world away to find answers. >> and we've been married over 14 years and my love for her is deeper than i've ever had for any other individual. >> fox report, the mission to bring her home. >> and will that be credit or debit? how you choose to pay could cost you more at checkout. i'm harris falkner, we begin tonight
think paul ryan said it's going to happen in 31 days, and i think it is pro-growth. but before we get there, what a pity, truly. solid "60 minutes" reporter steve kroft completely whiffed with his interview last night. and still, we do not know what happened in benghazi on that tragic night when four americans were killed. here's how the president actually laughed off one question he did ask about that night. >> i remember bob gates, you know, first thing he said to me, i think maybe first week or two and he obviously been through seven presidents or something and he says, mr. president, one thing i can guarantee you is that at this moment somewhere somehow somebody in the federal government is screwing up. >> there's nothing funny about this. i'm sorry. there is nothing funny about that night in benghazi. and i regret that my friend steve did not ask a tough follow-up question. anyway, don't forget free market capitalism is the best path to prosperity. you know, we can fit in immigration reform in to free market capitalism and help our country and help mexico and help latin america.
with the majority of voters? >> i think they can. i think they have. the rubios and the ryans and the cruzes are more connected to where people really live. i'm not saying this president is unattractive and people want to continue watching believe that he could unite, but at every turn, he does not unite. he does divide. we're going backwards in the sense of we're identifying by our color and our gender and our income and our region. and it's just -- i would argue that the democrats have moved away from the mainstream way more than the republicans have. and i keep coming back to the state argument. they will -- we are coming up on a midterm. we have a number of democrats that have won in states. the majority of them that mitt romney won by double digitses. with the possible exception of north carolina. those democrats that are in the senate, the senate's not done its job. the house republicans have passed a budget. the senate has not passed a budget since obamacare was passed. those senate democrats that were just elected like heidi heitkamp or claire mccaskill, they're not going to support
about you in that regard. >> glory days. >> hal: by the way in shocking news -- paul ryan hated obama's speech. he accused the president of using a strawman argument. >> the president is a proud and competent liberal progressive. he invoked the constitution of the declaration at times which are something that everybody likes to hear, especially conservatives. but he invoked them as a means to sort of legitimize the agenda he has going forward which was you know, fairly partisan. very ideology for sure. and you know, it doesn't surprise me he did that because he's basically saying i'm a govern and i'm going to govern as a liberal and i won. >> exactly. your point is? >> he ran as a liberal. he won as a liberal. >> liberals wouldn't say he ran as a liberal. they wouldn't say that at all. >> nor would they say the speech was overtly liberal. there are two people involved in a communication exchange. the person speaking and the person listening and both play a part in the conversation. and it should some as no surprise that paul ryan hears what he wants to hear. and his former would-be bo
ryan, right there. ryan accused 60% of americans of being takers instead of makers. his party campaigned on reforming medicare, medicaid and social security, but ryan reportedly got booed as he walked through this morning. ryan's reception is a striking reminder of why the republicans lost the election. today the president assured groups like the aarp and labor he hasn't forgotten his promise. >> we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. >> some republicans are complaining now that the president's speech was too partisan and didn't reach out enough. here is a news flash. this isn't about those republican lawmakers. this is about you, the american people and the policies that the president has put forth. it's about fixing the budget without burdening the poor in this country or the elderly or the disabled. the next four years are going to be very interesting. let
. where else do you see paul ryan mingling with jay-z and beyonce who belted out the national anthem. >> the ceremony was over there was a stream of pomp and circumstance waiting. >> from signing papers to officially nominate the new cabinet to lunch with congressional leaders. then, of course, the parade. the first family could make the way back to the white house in that grand bulletproof review stand. yet all of that could wait because leaving the west front of the capitol, the president went off script to take in the vista of the national mall. mr. obama seemed to be taking in the moment. overheard saying he would never quite see this view again. as the president is set to sell the agenda in the "state of the union" next month, it is worth noting that gallop is out -- gallup is out with approval rating for the third term and the third worst number since world war ii. only better than carter and ford. worth noting after the president it was reagan and clinton. two guys who had troubles in the second terms but also got a lot done. >> bret: all right, ed. the band behind you, the pe
to be able to be a combat soldier. but everyone is entitled to a chance. >> marine such as ryan smith, retired sergeant who served in iraq thinks the decision puts lives at risk. >> my first sargent was mortally wounded in iraq and he was the tourett of am fibbous assault vehicle. he feels 6'5", 250-pound man. i haven't seen a woman yet that would be able to pull that man out of the amphibious assault vehicle and try to get him to medivac. >> the first female combat pilot disagrees. >> they were making the same argument back then that women didn't have the endurance or the strength to be fighter pilots. i had just completed the hawaii ironman triath lon beating most of the military men. and they said i don't have the insurance to be a fighter pilot. >> there are issues of societal norms. many americans remember when private first class jessica lynch was captured in iraq. her recent biography details how she was rapeed by her captors. in a statement today she said she supported the change. >> listen, there is a big difference between being in harm's way, women are ambushed as part of u
or paul ryan have been saying, it's different from what they themselves were saying six months ago, a year ago. i think the focus is turning to the right place. that doesn't mean that he'll persuade the public, but it certainly helps to ask the right question if you're looking for the right answer. >> where joe, i want to bring up something that my friend john podhoretz mentioned, and i say that carefully because reihan salam, my name has up been butchered by others, so i want to thank you for the privilege of butchering someone else's name. it's a rare treat for me. [laughter] i wanted to ask you, part of what i heard in john podhoretz's remarks is that some of the difficulties we encountered, shall we say, during the invasion of iraq and the occupation were things that really damaged the republican brand in a deep way, yet -- and so you've had a lot to say about foreign policy. you've also had a thing or two to say about the republican position on taxes and a number of other issues. so i wonder, is your view that republicans need to get right on foreign policy and can that that is really
-new stories and breaking news. congressman paul ryan in his first national tv interview since the election and a former republican vice-presidental nominee came out swinging, what he has to say about the president's second term, plus the warning from members of his own party. meantime the president's comments on football getting lots of attention, his call for less violence in america's favorite sport. will that bring any changes? a desperate attempt to rescue a toddler from raging floodwaters, the whole story and the dramatic video plus breaking news, it's all happening now. it is all "happening now." jon: bipartisan group of senators about to announce a plan to rewrite our nation's immigration law and provide a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants. good morning i'm jon scott. jamie: i'm jamie colby, in for jenna lee. jon: welcome. jamie: thank you. the plan includes measures to strengthen our border security, and will improve they say the illegal immigration process and include an effective ememployment verification system to insure employers do not hire undocumented
ryan e. says that deep budget cuts, known as sequestration are likely unavoidable if the u.s. hopes to prevent a debt crisis. >> we think these sequesters will happen because the democrats have opposed our efforts to replace those cuts with others and offered no alternatives. bill: jeff sessions republican senator out of alabama ranking member of the budget committee, how are you doing, senator and good morning to you. >> thank you, bill. bill: what do you think about what congressman ryan is saying there. >> it was a very serious statement that he made. i believe it's accurate. i do not believe that the house will eviscerate the sequester. 18 months ago we agreed to cut spending 2.1 trillion out of a $47 trillion budget, not nearly enough but it did -- made some changes in the right direction, and that can't be given up. the house has passed legislation that would prevent the disproportionate damage to the defense department and spread those cuts through other agencies and departments, some of which, most of which had none, and i think that is what we've got to do and got to work t
of hand make a big mistake. we he heard from one of those hunters, congressman paul ryan this morning. >> let's go beyond just this debate and let's make sure we get deeper. what's our policy on mental illness? what's going on in our culture that produces this kind of thing and i hope we just don't skip that and bring out political ideas that recycle failed policies of the past. >> ryan's republican colleagues marcia blackburn suggested today banning assault weapons will not prevent mass murder. >> doing a so-called assault weapons ban is going after a symptom and as teachers have said to me, don't focus on whatever is the weapon. get to the root cause. >> senator feinstein said today she doesn't expect a vote on her proposed gun control legislation for a while. gregg? >> gregg: peter doocy in washington. peter, thanks. >> well, new reaction today to the pentagon's decision to lift the ban on women in combat, which could open up thousands of front line military positions as soon as this year. some critics of the policy though they say that the mixing of genders on the battlefield is a
, the republicans, paul ryan at the national institute review, and says that unity is the only way to rebound from an election loss from president obama. >> we won't play the villain in his morality plays, we have to stay united. we have to show if given the chance we can govern, that we have better ideas. >> ryan telling the g.o.p. that they must try to fit their ideas into the president's proposals while rejecting some outright. and tomorrow hottest topic, health care and limiting government spending. the nba fan who made that half court shot and was tackled by lebron james in celebration now tackled by uncle sam. >> all right, mike, here we go! (cheers) unbelievable! that's the longest sky-hook i've seen, it was shot around the world, and scoring him $75,000, that's before taxes. he's going to get hit hard after the governor and home state of illinois get their hands on it, about $53,000, not bad for that basketball shot! isn't that amazing and lebron tackles them and if you watch both teams went crazy which is cool. stay tuned to "fox & friends" and michael will join the show at 9:30 this morn
of the wilderness so to speak. congressman paul ryan had some advice for the gop on saturday's national review conference. then i want to play for everybody the rising star, mayor of utah, or in utah, mia love. what she had to say about the gop. >> the president will bait us. he will portray us as cruel and unyielding. we capital get rattled. we won't play the villain in his plays. we have to stay united. we have to show that if given the chance, we can govern, that we have better ideas. >> the president, i believe, is president today not because of what he does, but because of what he says because people feel like they can relate to him. people feel like -- that he can relate to them and that he understands even though he can't really -- he is not really doing anything to help the people on the ground. they feel like he understands them. >> so the take-away that the president has made the gop the villain? >> you know, i think the take-away is that they don't want to change. paul ryan's remarks in particular were -- boiled down to exactly that, didn't they? he said we've got to keep doing what
louisiana governor bobby jindal, followed by paul ryan. >> "newsmakers" with centered -- >> cq roll call's national security reporter. >> the pentagon recently made a historic announcement that they would open up all occupational specialties, including the infantry and artillery to women. do you plan to block all or some of that plan? >> no. we have a process. i met with undersecretary yesterday. i met with the undersecretary yesterday morning. the senate armed services committee can look incrementally as they make these changes. we can either talk them out of it or introduce legislation. if something that we do not know yet what they will come out with and they hear from the service chiefs, we will see what is reasonable. we will use our own judgment. i caution people who are hysterical about this. let's wait and see what they do. we will stop the bad stuff. >> the defense cemetery has said any exceptions will have to get approved by him. the implication is there are going to move fairly dramatically in this direction. do you have any concerns right now about what they have said so
a little bit about congressman paul ryan. he was of course the republican vice-presidential nominee. he has been pretty quiet since the election. speaking out in his first national interview warning republicans that president obama is not looking to moderate and move to the middle but is instead looking for a political fight. >> i decided not to comment between the election and the inauguration because i wanted to see what kind of president we're looking at here? what kind of path and trajectory he was putting his administration on. all of the statements and all of the comments lead me to believe he is thinking more of a political conquest than political compromise. and that is my concern. jon: ryan also focused on the nation's fiscal crisis saying only significant spending cuts, not tax reform, will solve the deficit problem. that is something is he thinks the president is missing. >> i don't think that the president thinks we actually have a fiscal crisis. he has been reportedly saying to our leaders we don't have a spending problem, we have a health care problem. that leads me to conclud
of steve's great heros congressman ryan of wisconsin took some of that risk and saw the kind of pounding that you take for saying, yes, i would make strong cuts when it comes to something like medicare. i think president obama has been reluctant to join in that junk without knowing that in fact speaker boehner republican leader in the senate mitch mcconnell would be able to join hands with him as he takes the lead. let me say i think that entitlement spending that republicans house what they ais a is three months they will allow the debt ceiling to be hiked and try to attach some spending cuts or at least say we need to be engaged in negotiations for further increase in debt hike. i think that was a recession for republicans in reality they were losing this argue uchlt. it reengineers to the point that 60 percent of americans think you have to have spending cuts right now. >> you listen to the president's senior advisor today he was talking again about a balanced approach saying whatever deal on the debt ceiling has to have tax loopholes closed. speaker boehner brought the 800 billion in
, recent graduate -- [inaudible] my christian is no spur to ryan. it has to do is start calm. what can we do effectively these days to interrupt certain messages of our own works >> not a whole lot. i think it's really important when we talk about strategically engaging to recognize often times you get this dynamic where we think about operations and then strategic communications and that's clearly wrong. actions speak author than words. the matter what people are assigned to archer illustrates and i'm not convinced the trust strikes are important i sometimes people think they are. but the most important thing we can do is to eliminate any sense there's a gap between our actions and works, even if our actions are unpopular. we just need to explain what we're doing from the state clearly what were doing it. peter bergen wrote an op-ed a long time ago saying we should acknowledge strong strikes. at the time is that he was crazy, but he came to agree with him. and this is the point. we have a story to tell that it's not going to be popular lot at the time, but we need to explain that very cl
also to be thinking about growth. every time i talk to paul ryan, i say, paul, just don't talk about what we got to do to balance the budget. talk about growth. what can we do to grow the economy? all the entitlement programs like medicare, many of the fixes are really simple. they will affect people in the future, raise the retirement age year or 18 months or two years, you know, control some of the spending on some of the programs, co-pays, and we need to do a better job of explaning simply and directly to the people. we're not talking about e eliminating or cutting the programs. we're talking modifying the programs going forward so the programs will be there in the future. liz: senator, somehow, the american people did not hear the republican side of the debate or grasp the tax cuts were g.o.p. republican tax cuts. they are not owned by the democrats, they are the george w. bush tax cuts. back to raising the retirement age, that scares the american people. i understand that the republicans are talking, you know, openly and honestly about what needs to happen, but if you are going
that's not what social security and medicare are, a jab not only at mitt romney but paul ryan, who he will be dealing with. >> when you have a guy who has bullied you in the schoolyard for four years and you finally fight the bully and you beat them like he just did in this election, you're not as afraid of the bully as you was or at least cautious. i think they bullied this president. he went to the mat and re-elected with a wider margin than george bush and saying the bullying is over. we're either going to fight or work together. >> the problem is both sides feel like they were bullied over the past four years and they've got to figure out how to work together over the next four years. i want to talk about yesterday with you quickly and open it up. it struck me as a son of the south, like you, son of the south, second inaugurations struck me as actually more remarkable moment in the history of race relations, because when the president was inaugurated the first time, we all stopped, kind of like everybody in america was collectively at time square looking up at the ticker that said
, "politico" just popped up a story about how speaker boehner, with the help of paul ryan, turned around a conference that was ready to go off the next cliff. they wanted to shut down the government. they wanted to default on america's debt. at that williamsburg retreat, he walked them through what the consequences of that was, showed them polling about the blame that they would take for it, let them talk instead of imposing a solution on them. and very calmly, with paul ryan being the key salesman because of his credibility with conservatives, convincing them to go ahead with this three-month extension that joe, you say, is a smart idea. >> it is a smart idea. and this morning, you know, we were talking about chris christie being one of the favorites in 2016. "politico" this morning's going behind the curtain again with a question that everybody in washington's asking. are the democrats going to be putting up joe biden for president in 2016? here's how the vice president answered that question when asked yesterday. >> is there any reason you wouldn't run? >> oh, there's a whole lot of r
's debt ceiling through may 19. that vote is set for tomorrow. congressman paul ryan, last year's republican vice presidential nominee, said today republicans want to shift the focus to enacting a budget, with major spending cuts. the senate is going on four years now for not having passed a budget. we think this gives us the time we need in this nation to have a good, thorough vigorous and honest debate about what it takes to get our fiscal house in order and about how to budget. families budget. businesses budget. our federal government should budget. >> ifill: the bill also says if lawmakers don't enact a budget with spending cuts, they won't be paid. in the senate, democratic majority leader harry reid declined to comment on that provision, but he did say that, in general, he welcomes the house move. >> i'm very glad that they sent us up a clean... they're going to send us a clean debt ceiling bill. the other stuff on it will athat when we need to. i'm glad we're not facing crisis here in a matter of a few days. >> sreenivasan: president obama said he wanted a longer-term ex
, using paul ryan as his salesman, urged his members to make their stand on the budget and sequesters. jake sherman writes, in roughly 48 hours, the republicans went from defense to offense and retreated to the debt ceiling must be matched by spending cuts. it was the swiftest and most drastic position switch in boehner's speakership. it was not lost on kevin mccarthy who said, "what they'll say after that vote, this is the day of the comeback." maybe if comeback also conotes fractious and uncertain strategy. with no democratic support, the way could go the way of boehner's plan b if just seven republicans break rank. and they still have to contend with the rightward flank. >> you wouldn't believe the number of conservative commentators, hey, you know what, we're going to have to start backing off obama, he's not really a bad guy, not a socialist marxist, he's just a chicago thug. we're becoming isolated on an island here, it's very small. it's a drift out in the middle of nowhere. >> joining us now to discuss this is the sage of capitol hill, nbc's luke russert. luke, it never stops
